Video: What Ever Happened To Saving The Rainforest?

Dear brothers and sisters,

There are some that think that the struggle to say the Amazon rainforest had been won. Alas, it has turned out to be but a temporary respite. The cattle ranchers and soybean growers have redoubled their efforts. It appears that the clear cutters hold sway.

This tribute to the resilience of the human spirit, is a “must see” for every aficionado of aliveness.

Toward more and more vivacity,

Recipe: Super Energy Kale Soup Recipe

by Dr. Mercola


Eating kale and other cruciferous vegetables two to three times a week or, even better, four to five times a week, is an easy way to significantly boost your health. Just one cup of kale will flood your body with disease-fighting vitamins K, A, and C, along with respectable amounts of manganese, copper, B vitamins, fiber, calcium, and potassium.

Ingredients

1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
5 cups chicken or bone broth
1 medium carrot, diced into 1/4-inch cubes (about 1 cup)
1 cup diced celery
2 red potatoes, diced into 1/2-inch cubes
3 cups kale, rinsed, stems removed and chopped very fine
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons dried sage
Salt and pepper to taste

New! Items For September

Macadamia Nut Butter – Alive & Organic

As you know we’ve been out of alive, organic macadamias all year.We were getting them from Hawaii but they’ve become unavailable. We’ve found a source in Guatemala. Growing in a different clime and soil, their flavor, naturally enough, differs from their Hawaiian counterparts. To some tastes, the Guatemalan variety is a more nutty and earthy.

We Welcome Investors

The U.S. organic market in 2018 broke through the $50 billion mark for the first time, with sales hitting a record $52.5 billion, up 6.3 percent from the previous year, according to the 2019 Organic Industry Survey released by the Organic Trade Association.
Characteristics that are identified with organic, such as clean, transparent, fresh and sustainable helped boost organic sales to unprecedented levels, according to the survey.

New records were made in both the organic food market and the organic non-food market. Organic food sales reached $47.9 billion, for an increase of 5.9 percent. Sales of organic non-food products jumped by 10.6 percent to $4.6 billion. The growth rate for organic continued to easily outpace the general market: in 2018, total food sales in the U.S. edged up just 2.3 percent while total non-food sales rose 3.7 percent.
Almost 6 percent (5.7%) of the food sold in this country is now organic. Today’s consumers can find organic products – food and non-food items — in every aisle of their grocery stores. They can choose organic in their favorite big box store, their club warehouse store, even in their neighborhood convenience store, and increasingly on the internet. Organic is no longer a niche market.

Thanks to your kind support, we too are growing. We wish to hire more teamworkers and to purchase tools and equipment. We are seeking long term, stable capital. If taking a strategic position in the organic food industry appeals to you, let’s talk!
